Inter Milan Winger Perisic says “best player” Lionel Messi cannot do it all for Argentina as they have to play as a team before they can achieve things in the #Worldcup
Perisic put in a good performance for Croatia as he helped his team to spank star studded Argentina 3-0 with goals from Rebic, Modric and Rakitic.
Croatia have confirmed their place in the round of 16 of the World Cup as they now have 6 points from a possible 6 in group D having beaten Nigeria in the other game.
“Messi is the best, just like Cristiano Ronaldo, but you can only achieve something if you play as a team,” Perisic told Mediaset.
“Argentina need to change something if they are to go forward”.
“As for us, we’re on the right track to emulate what we did in France ’98 and must continue like this”
“We did really well. In the locker room, we said that we had to defend stoutly and we did that”
“We had chances in the first half too, then the goals arrived after the break. We have six points, we deserved them and now we want to beat Iceland too.”-Perisic
A point for Croatia against Iceland would be enough to secure top spot for in Group D, and ensure that a tie with likely Group C winners France is avoided in the next round
